Nanda/ Hobbs Gallery presents work by artist Tom Adair.

Chromatones delves headlong into the 20th century modernist architectural icons—an era in American history where anything was possible. Drawing inspiration from the Hunter S. Thompson classic film “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” the paintings play on optical duplicity and superficiality. It is the first time Adair is showcasing his work with a new CYMK (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black) palette.

“The process of hand-replicating a CYMK technique — a method that relies on layered dots of colour to form and image — lends itself to a hallucinogenic vividness and a sense of hyper-reality that was inspired by the film and visiting Joshua Tree, a destination synonymous with psilocybin trips,” says Tom. “It allowed me to focus more on exploring the mark-making and bringing the painting to the forefront of my practice”.

This exhibition is open by appointment. Please contact the gallery to arrange a suitable viewing time.
